BRONXVILLE - Several high-end private homes in Bronxville are opening their doors to the public for a unique shopping event.
Six luxurious homes, including a $4.5 million mansion turned into a boutique shopper's paradise for the "Trails to Treasure" event. The shopping extravaganza, which started back in 2002, is always the Friday before Mother's Day.
It's organized by the Junior League of Bronxville, a group of women volunteers who help improve various parts of the communities in Tuckahoe, Bronxville, Mount Vernon, Eastchester and Yonkers. Junior League members say 10 percent of sales go back into their organization, while the rest of the money goes into outreach programs.
Junior League officials say last year they raised about $60,000 for this event, and they hope to reach that mark again this year.
